Using the security principles of the CIA triad model, our assessment will help you understand the Confidentiality, Integrity, and Availability considerations of your system architecture, set security policies, and guide your security investments. We can help you build in security from step one and for every stage of the process.

Knowing that savvy attackers could find vulnerabilities in even the most secure systems,
Wind River has developed a best-in-class incident response process. Our team actively monitors a variety of sources (NIST, US-CERT) through the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database at, will proactively notify you of potential vulnerabilities that might impact supported Wind River products, and will offer resolution measures even before the community is aware of the vulnerability. Our response process helps protect devices from cyber-attacks even after product deployment.

With built-in security capabilities, our software offerings enable you to implement comprehensive security that minimizes attack surfaces end to end, from devices through communications networks and gateways to the cloud. Our offerings follow a strict security development process from assessment through deployment, providing reassurance that these solutions are highly secure and reliable for mission-critical IoT systems.

Is your company’s security strategy ready for the data that digital transformation is going to generate?

Walk through a brief set of questions to see how well you are protected against cyberthreats.
